David was appointed to represent District 15 in the Arizona State Senate on January 12, 2012 and sits on the Appropriations, Judiciary, Rules and Government Reform Committees. Prior to his senate appointment, David was elected to the House of Representatives for three consecutive terms from 2004 to 2010 and served as the House Minority Leader from January 2009 to December 2010.

David is currently the Chief Administrator of ASU Preparatory Academy, a unique charter public school for K-10th Grade students. The school is located in downtown Phoenix and works in partnership with Arizona State University to help students succeed in college and become active citizens by developing strong community ties and collaborations with artists, business owners and leaders throughout the valley.

David is an attorney who has spent his career dedicated to public service and fighting to improve the quality of life for all Arizonans. As an Assistant Attorney General, he represented the State of Arizona on school funding issues and was the State’s attorney for a $1.4 billion school construct program. This project was the first of its kind in the country where the State of Arizona built and renovated hundreds of schools on time and on budget. David also served as the staff attorney for the Senate Judiciary Committee where he advised legislators on Arizona’s criminal justice system, consumer protection, courts and elections laws. David has also worked as an attorney and prosecutor for the federal government’s National Labor Relations Board where he fought to protect the rights of American workers.

In addition to his many years of service at the legislature, David was also elected to the Phoenix Union High School District Governing Board from 2003 to 2010 and was the board president for two years. He helped reform schools, improve student achievement, and he also led the charge to create a district-wide Cesar Chavez holiday during his time on the board.

David is the recipient of the 2009 Arizona Chapter of the NASW Public Leader of the Year Award, and the 2009 Greater Phoenix Child Abuse Prevention Council's Cherish the Children Award in Media/Public Policy. He received the 2009 Cesar Chavez Continuing the Legacy Award from the Latino Law Student Association of William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul, MN. In 2008 he received the "Golden Apple Award" from the AZ Parents for Education in recognition for his continued support for public education, the 2006 Arizona Students Association’s Legislator of the Year Award, and the Arizona Business and Education Coalition’s Legislative Partner Award.
